Vitale, Farnham or Sill are easy choices. If we don't mind substituting a little physicality with some gods honest talent then Jeffrey. Hell, I'd rather MacIntyre I think. At least he wouldn't get so many minutes.

We have had a revolving door of 4th liners for a reason. They are easy to come by. Philly just lost Talbot. It took less than a week to get Adam Hall off of waivers for free.

Neil is still an idiot, but good on Despres for accepting some responsibility. Gotta keep your head up and on a swivel when Neil is around.

I don't see how keeping your head up even plays in that scenario. Plays puck along boards facing the boards, "turns around" gets smashed in the head.

Who's going to have eyes in the back of their skull?

People are playing this off too easily as a good hit.


It was preditory and head was POC. Needless to say, he wasn't hurt and him taking a bit of blame won't hurt since he wasn't hurt on the play.

Has any official source tweeted that Fleury had his daughter? I saw some fans tweet that she was born and named Estelle. That would make sense because it's the name of his late grandmother but I haven't seen anything official.

I think the Penguins, from top-to-bottom (specifically Bylsma and Despres) have handled it right, but I agree with you. I felt like it was a predatory hit, and Neil's tongue wag did nothing to dissuade me. I've seen the Penguins penalized for worse. And as Bylsma said, how did we come out with a PK? Adams did nothing 4-minute minor worthy.

The head wasn't the POC, or Despres would have been out. Despres watched the puck for a good second before putting his head up to toss the puck around the boards. You GOTTA know someone is coming a la Colby Armstrong, and to be honest, one of his teammates should probably have let him know Neil was gunning for him. Predatory hit, for sure, but it was a beauty of a hit. If Kunitz had hit someone like that, people would have spammed a gif of it for a good 30 posts. I hate Neil, but it was a nice hit. Kept his elbows own, and skates on the ice. I've got no problem with it.

Again, I don't have a problem with the hit at all. Neil is a *******, but it's his job to be a ******* and he's very good at it. That being said, the officiating last night was some of the worst I've seen in a very long time. Just utterly confusing calls and missed calls all night long, for both sides.

James Neal and Bubba Watson were just talking to eachother via tweets. By the looks of things Bubba said something he shouldnt of about the game of hockey and everyone jumped down his throat. He was quick to apologize though. Looks like Bubba and James have now formed a friendship?

Bubba Watson is a d-bag. Just had to point that out.

Bennett has vaulted himself into the core. i'd say half of it is his play and the other half is his personality.

The "I'm just being Bubba" shtick wore thin long ago for me. To me his crying during every interview, humble, Jesus loving act doesn't jive with his 500k watch wearing, whining on the course act.

Ricky Fowler definitely dresses like one (actually has toned it down this year except for Sunday's) but I can almost guarantee that Fowler would be a down to earth person to meet, whereas Watson would be an ass.
